Word Up

27 November 2009

Development of the 2010 Compass Volunteer program 'Word Up' is well and truly underway with Compass staff hosting 12 Compass school representatives at Social Inclusion headquarters throughout November and December to discuss each schools' preferred volunteer program requirements. With an education agenda focused heavily on literacy and numeracy, it is little surprise that these are the areas in which Compass schools have requested their volunteer programs be aimed.

The Compass Volunteer Program - Word Up will use Dept of Education and Training's National Partnerships preferred literacy program Multilit - 'making up lost time in literacy' to scaffold Word Up across our Compass primary Schools, while our secondary schools will develop Word Up programs that best suit their student needs.
